Dataset Description

To elucidate the epigenetic changes which occur when human long-term hematopoietic stem cells (LT-HSC) become activated we performed Bulk ATAC-Seq on 13 sorted bulk hematopoietic populations from cord bloodas well as single-cell ATAC-Seq upon CD34+CD38-CD45RA- cells enriched for HSC as well as CD34+/CD38+ progenitor cells both from cord blood. These studies revealed gains of chromatin accessibility around CTCF binding sites during HSPC activation, as such we additionally performed Low-C to directly profile the 3D conformation of human cord-blood derived LT-HSC and Short-term hematopoietic stem cells (ST-HSC), as well as Hi-C , ATAC-Seq and CTCF ChIP-Seq upon the OCIAML-2 cell line in which CTCF sites gained during LT-HSC activation are enriched. Finally we transduced human cord-blood LT-HSC with an shCTCF vector; in-vitro cultured LT-HSC cells harbouring shCTCF were used to perform RNA-Seq, and scATAC-Seq was performed on CD34+/CD38- human CB cells transduced with shCTCF, four weeks post xeno-transplantation into mice. Collectively these studies have helped us demonstrate the role of 3D chromatin conformation changes during human LT-HSC activation.
